Reconciliation 20 years of imprisonment, the first US DNA genealogy technology is also men’s innocence

American man Christopher Tapp was regained innocence today in a murder charged several decades ago. All evidence of DNA and gene genealogy technology was also the first to be used. Revolutionary investigative techniques have obtained this result.

Agence France-Presse reported that the 43-year-old Tap was charged with sexual assault and murdering Angie Dodge in 1996. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison in 1998 and has served 20 years in prison.

Based on the evidence found in the Gene Genealogy, the Idaho State Court completely reversed his conviction today. Gene genealogy versus DNA technology has been used to determine the identity of another suspect, the Golden State Killer.

The local media reported that Tapu said at the end of the hearing: “For me, this is a new life, a new beginning and a new world. I have to enjoy every day.”

Tup was able to regain his innocence because the police used gene genealogy techniques to arrest another suspect, Brian Dripps, in May, and he pleaded guilty to the case.

Under the court agreement, Tap was released in 2017 but has not revoked his murder charges. A year later, the team of lawyers who defended him was given the right to test the traces of sperm found in the Dodge bedroom. Gene genealogy allowed investigators to trace to Dilips.

After investigators compared the cigarette butts discarded by Dilips with the crime scene DNA, he lived in Dodge on the street in 1996 and admitted to commit crimes.

The Penny County prosecutor of Idaho withdrew his allegations against Tap and filed a motion to prove his innocence. The judge agreed to the motion today.
